This post contains gifted items.
This limited edition beauty box has a special place in my heart. The Latest in Beauty Do Good, Feel Good Beauty Haul Box* is in collaboration with Look Good Feel Better, a cancer charity that provide support to those suffering with cancer and £5.00 from the sale of each box goes directly to the charity. Since I was around 6 years old, my Mum had cancer three times and she sadly passed away when I was 17. She would have loved the charity Look Good Feel Better as the first thing she would do every morning, no matter how horrid she felt, was to put her makeup on and style her hair (or her wig), as it instantly made her feel better. Let's take a look at the seventeen (!!) products you will find inside...
First up is a product that I will be donating to a cancer charity as they are the Eylure C-Lash Naturals Lengthening Wispy Petite False Lashes (Full Size). C-Lash is a replacement lash for people who have lots their natural eyelashes, which I think is so amazing, and they were created by cancer survivor Codilia Gapare. These lashes would also be great for those who suffer from alopecia and they have an invisible band to help them look more natural.
For nails, you get the Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Colour (Full Size) in the shade Metallica, a gorgeous chrome silver. People with ill-health can often suffer with very ridged nails, but a chrome polish will distract the light from the ridges, so this would be a great option, but of course, it is also a gorgeous shade for all of us.
You then get a little luxury in the form of the Kiehl's Creme de Corps Whipped Body Butter (15ml - Deluxe Size). This is such a cult body product and contains Shea Butter and Jojoba Butter to moisturise the skin, as well as Soy Milk and Honey to nurture the skin. Kiehl's is one of my all-time favourite skincare and body care brands so it is great to see it in this box.
For the hair, we have the Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm (30ml - Deluxe Size). This is a hair primer that is a multi-benefit balm that fights frizz whilst giving hold and shine for long-lasting style and healthy looking hair. You can use it on its own or as a base for other hair-styling products for super fabulous hair!
Rituals create the most beautiful body care products and in this box you receive the Rituals Ritual Of Karma Foaming Shower Gel (50ml - Deluxe Size). This gorgeously scented shower foam contains Holy Lotus and White Tea and it is a gel that goes into a foam, so it is super nourishing and cleansing on the skin. A little goes a long way with this product, so even the deluxe size will provide plenty of uses.
Inside the box, you also get a few sample sizes of products, including the Invisibobble Waver, which is a plastic hair grip that is kinder to the hair, a sample of the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and a sample of the Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster. You also get a copy of the Blush magazine, which is in collaboration with Look Good Feel Better, and has some really great articles in there.
I adore anything with lavender in, so I was thankful for the Faith in Nature Lavender & Geranium Hand Wash (Full Size). Faith in Nature use skin-loving ingredients including Lavender and Geranium and this hand wash protects the skin from bacteria, but also releases a scent of calm. I know hand wash is always needed, so it is great to have something useful, but also kind to the skin.
Bioderma is one of my favourite skincare brands as their products always do as they say and don't include any nasties. The Bioderma Sebium H2O Cleansing Micellar Water (Full Size) is an iconic micellar water for oily to acne-prone skin that cleanses, removes makeup and dirt effectively from the skin whilst also purifying and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and thoroughly clean.
Another product we can't get enough of at the moment is hand gel, and in this box you get the Neqi Hand Cleansing Gel (Full Size). Not only will this hand gel cleanse your hands and protect against harmful bacteria, but it will also nourish the skin with the help of Aloe Vera and Shea, so there is no more dry, flaky skin for us!
Look Good Feel Better have their own makeup brush collection, and in this box you receive the Look Good Feel Better Multi Tasking Brush (Full Size). This all-in-one brush is perfect for everyday use and with versatility at the heart of its creation, it allows effortless application of powder, blusher and bronzer. It has a lightweight handle and luxuriously soft bristles for a smooth complexion.
The brands in the Latest in Beauty boxes always wow me, and so I was thrilled to see the Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in the shade Neutral Rose (Deluxe Size). Even though this is a deluxe sample size, you still get the classy gold packaging and the shade is beautiful, and will suit most skin tones. I love Bobbi Brown lip products as they are long-wearing and super pigmented, as well as being moisturising on the lips, so they don't dry out the skin.
They really are spoiling us with this box. Next up is the L'Occitane Almond Delicious Hand Cream (Full Size). Enriched with almond milk and almond oil, the silky-smooth cream helps to nourish and soften the hands while enveloping them with the subtle scent of fresh almonds. It has a non-greasy formula and is one of the best hand creams on the market.
One of the things I love most about beauty boxes is the opportunity to try a new brand or product, and I hadn't heard of this brand before. The Skincity Skincare Milky Moisture Enzyme Peeling (Full Size) is an exfoliant that uses small grains of cellulose that gently peel the skin until they melt whilst also containing barrier-strengthening ingredients such as Squalene and Oat Oil, making for a rejuvenating and skin smoothing product that you only need to use once a week.
The penultimate product in this box is the Revlon ColorStay Shadow Stick (Full Size) in the shade Sierra. I have a couple of these in other shades and they are gorgeous and so quick and easy to use. If you have hooded lids, this will also work really well for you as I find that the formula doesn't crease or bleed into fine lines and creases. A one-swipe wonder of an eyeshadow!
When the warmer weather rolls around, my lips get super dry so it was fun and useful to see the Lip Smacker Sprite Lip Balm (Full Size) in this box. Sprite is one of my favourite drinks and I always used to get Lip Smackers when I was a kid in America, so this is a nostalgic throwback for me. This will leave your lips hydrated and nourished with the much-loved taste of Sprite!
